ADVENT Officer - Call Reinforcements

Gives Advent Captains the ability to call reinforcements to help them in the battlefield! Now with a .ini file to customise the type of reinforcements called!
This ability can only be used once, and will only be used by the AI when he sees that you've wiped out all his buddies (is alone and facing multiple enemies). Hopefully this makes a previously underwhelming unit more dangerous, shifts player targetting priorities, and expands on a enemy unit concept that could have been so much more.

The ability uses one action point, allowing the captain make another move when called, or move to better cover before calling. The reinforcements are always on the alien team, and adapt to the players force level as usual (meaning harder enemies further into the game).

Also on Nexus![www.nexusmods.com]

ChangeLog 19/02/16:
- Added .ini file to allow custimisation of the types of reinforcements called, and the distance it will try to call them to.
- Descriptive comments on how to change the reinforcements and create custom sets
- No longer spawns the in the center of the Xcom Squad, but a random direction, and your set amount of tiles, away.
- Default is 20 tiles away, but the game will always, no matter what you set the value too, spawn them within line of sight

I've used a mix of your and Farkyrie's code for a stand-alone WOTC version of the officer reinforcements ability - I've credited you both in the description, but if you have any issues with the code being used this way, please let me know. Many thanks.

It would be nice to see this updated, I enjoyed the challenge of having to keep an eye on the advent officers.

Don't think it needs a new game, you could well need to clear out your config folder though.
The Captain will call in a reinforcement drop, if your mod-added enemies are set to appear in reinforcement drops then they should appear.
